Erica Bloudek

Chief Operating Officer

Erica joined Ashton Thomas Private Wealth in 2021 as Director of Operations and was appointed Chief Operating Officer in 2024. As COO, she oversees all operational and client service functions across the enterprise and manages third-party custodian relationships. The firm’s operations and client service functions are focused on providing consistent, proactive support to the firm’s wealth advisors, enabling them to offer clients customized wealth solutions and white-glove service.

Originally hailing from the Minneapolis metro area, Erica attended Cardinal Stritch University from which she received a degree in Business Management.

She began her career with Wells Fargo Investments in 2003 as an Investment Operations Representative. Early in her career, Erica developed a passion for coaching and developing of her professional colleagues. She held several operations and client-service-related roles within the Wells Fargo organization, including Client Service Consultant with Wells Fargo Advantage Funds and a similar role with Wells Capital Management. Before joining Ashton Thomas, she was Director of Client Support Services with Wells Fargo subsidiary Galliard Capital Management, where she spent more than seven years.

Erica and her husband, Erik, a former hedge fund trader, relocated from Minnesota to Arizona with their daughter and son in 2020. When they are not working on their favorite project, building the family’s dream home in north Peoria, they enjoy spending time with family and being outdoors.
